I have super sensitive skin. I have tried *everything* to moisturize. I never found one moisturizer that did not make my skin red and burning. I am in my late 30's now, and so I worried that my face not being hydrated was going to cause pre-mature wrinkling. What could I do? Burning my face with moisturizers couldn't be much better for it, either. I had resigned myself to the inevitable wrinkles that were sure to come. The only make up I have been able to use on my skin without the redness and break outs was BareEscentuals BareMinerals, so I was excited to find out about their RareMinerals Purely Nourishing facial moisturizer. Make no mistake about it - this is an expensive product - up there with department store products. It is covered by their money-back guarantee but with the success I'd had with the [RareMinerals Renew and Reveal Facial Cleanser][1] , I knew I wouldn't be needing that.

This RareMinerals product goes on smoothly and has a light, pleasant scent to it. It hydrates without feeling greasy. You don't need very much of it - it goes a long way. I have been using it for weeks now and I have not had any redness, breakouts, or burning sensations. I really thought I would never find a product to clean my face without irritating it. Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing facial moisturizer will be my only moisturizer from now on - I won't even look any further! Maybe I can ward off the wrinkles for a few extra years now!

I read a lot of reviews on bare essentuals rare minerals moisturizer, and I found more than less raved about it saying that it was one of the best moisturizers, women were saying their skin haven't felt so good in years so I figured it was worth a shot. I have used a lot of moisturizers before with not a lot of luck. Also bare essentuals already has a good reputation so I figured no harm done to give it a shot. When I tried it, honestly I wasn't upset or mad about it, but disappointed. I expected my skin to feel great after a few uses, but instead it kind of felt like my skin that was dry was not bring hydrated, but becoming more oily. As my skin was getting more oily, I was beginning to have some break outs that happened a couple weeks after using it. I'm glad I tried it so I know next time to not just trust a name and do a little more research before buying something. I wouldn't use it again.

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex is formulated with active minerals that contain skin-renewing benefits, and antioxidant protection. The moisturizer is designed to provide skin with more than one need the correct amount of hydration.
I have been using this product for a few months now and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! I was able to see and feel a change just after a weeks use!
My skin is smoother, my pores are much smaller if any, and the complexion is much more natural. The cream goes on smooth and absorbs immediately making it perfect for easy everyday use.
I have very sensitive skin and finding a product that helps with multiple factors is a challenge until now!

An Essential For My Skin

By 

from USA

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

I have combination skin and have always found it to be a great hassle in choosing a moisturizing product that works for me. After trying so many products and not having any luck, a friend recommended that I try Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer. I tried it and loved it. I have been using this moisturizer for a couple of years now and have had great results. I like how easy and convenient it is to use. I also like that it rubs into my skin and doesn't leave an oily feel. The fragrance is light, not overwhelming like some others that I have used in the past. I think that this is a great product as well as a great price for the very noticable results that I have gotten. I would gladly recommend Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer to anyone. You will be more than satisfied with the results you will receive.

The best in my opinion

By 

from USA

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

I have been using BE products for upwards of ten years and I have been using the moisturizer about that long. To be honest, I use pure Aragon oil as well as a facial moisturizer but I tend to use this product more in the winter, when I need I meed more intensive moisture. The things I like about this product are that it is creamy, not greasy, and that it absorbs very quickly into the skin. It is also very effective, even in quite extreme cases such as dealing with dry skin from a cold or very harsh weather (which I am dealing with right now). I have also used it on fry skin after a sun burn and it is very calming. The other thing I love about this product is that the packaging helps it last a lot longer which is great because it's not cheep. The product is not exposed to air until it is pumped out so it stays fresh longer. Also it is all natural and great for sensitive skin. As I've said, I use one other facial moisturizer but in general I am very picky about what I use on my face and this definitely makes the cut.

Scent
The scent is not horrible or offensive, I just find I don't love it. But that is not a big deal.

The Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer really absorbs well onto my face and it doesn't irritate my skin. After I applied it on my face, my skin looked moisturized and hydrated. It's also easier to put on makeup after applying this moisturizer on.

My everyday moisturizer

By 

from USA

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

This is the only moisturizer I can use any day, every day! It never gets too heavy or makes my skin too oily. At the same time, it still works in harsh winters. I think this is what makes bare essential products stand out. Their products are always just right. I also like how the packaging is. Most moisturizers comes in jars, which can be annoying and messy to use. This is a must have in my cosmetic bag

Good Product, Terrible Name

By 

from USA

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

While I do enjoy using this product I have a number of issues with it. For one, the name of the product is ridiculous. I understand what the y were going for but seriously come on, in such a competitive market, I cannot imagine how so many people could have signed off on "Bare Escentuals". So awkward.

Besides that minor name related setback, the product overall is a good one. It is NOT oil free so beware, but if you have the right skin for it, it's not a very expensive alternative to the fancier stuff out there. I do, however, do not enjoy the scent very much. Although it goes away quickly I cannot help but think other people will be able to smell it on me all day. Additionally, application of the product causes my fingers and hands to become overly moisturized and uncomfortably greasy since I use a hand moisturizer often throughout the day. This has lead to a "face first" policy to counteract this issue.

Leslie does it again!

By 

from Dover, DE

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

Rare Minerals is truly a great idea. I like the idea of putting natural products on my face. I have oily very mature skin so I am careful what I put on it. This product feels great going on and seems to help keep it clear. I would recommend this to any woman who takes care of herself naturally.

Soothing

By 

from USA

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

This product is perfect for my combination/sensitive skin. I've tried so many other moisturizers and none of them help me retain an even skin texture and tone as I get occasional breakouts from sensitivity to products. After using this, my skin feels moisturized yet non-greasy. It's a bit hard to spread around but it absorbs well and leaves my skin smooth and clear.

The Bare Escentuals moisturizer smells earthy and calming. As an added plus, it also faded my hyperpigmentation spots. I use this daily after cleansing and toning and any redness I get from that is erased after I apply this moisturizer. It literally calms my skin so that it doesn't feel nearly as irritated as before. I feel like this product really improves the dullness of my skin, and makes it more radiant and bright. It might be less moisturizing for those with dry skin though, because it doesn't feel quite as moisturizing in the winter.

Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Moisturizer is the best!

By 

from Camp Lejeune, NC

Comments about Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer:

I haven't had much luck with Bare Escentuals powder make-up, but I do happen to LOVE this RareMinerals moisturizer. Between working as a body care buyer at Whole Foods Market and all the samples I get from my online orders, I've tried a million different products and I can actually say that this is one of the best moisturizers I've ever tried.

**Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer** is so good, I plan on buying a bottle as soon as I run out of the one I'm using. If you normally have dry skin, or experience winter dryness, I highly recommend this product!

Effectiveness
Why do I love Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Purely Nourishing Facial Moisturizer? Well, not only is it paraben-free, petroleum-free and made with amazing ingredients, it leaves my face incredibly soft, smooth and supple. I apply this in the morning under my make-up and it lasts all day until I take my make-up off at night. This moisturizer is designed for normal to dry skin, so if you're oily, this might be too much for you. I, however, find it absolutely perfect for winter (If you have SUPER dry skin, they make a concentrated cream that would probably be perfect for you). My face usually gets moisturized well with other moisturizers, but nothing like this...and not for the entire day!

Ease of Application
Great. Rubs in nicely and my face absorbs the product perfectly.
